ProfessorJ.Z. Young: "Life of Mammals
1) When I was a dental student at University College London. Professor Young was professor at the department of anatomy. I recall his lectures well.
So you will understand that I already have a high regard for Professor young.
I think this book is an excellent introduction to anyone wanting to understand anatomy through evolution.
In some places it is a bit dated: e.g.at the time this book was written the electroreceptor function of the ampullae of Lorenzini was not known
However it may be the only place you will find authoritative information on the developmentalsegmental origin of the Cranial Nerves.
